The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is now what they call the “world car ” in the industry. Instead of building several different versions for different markets around the world, this Malibu will be more or less the same if he ‘s at a dealer in Beijing or in French Lick, which is not in France by the wayside.
Restrictions imposed on the world market some notable changes for this midsize sedan. Unlike any number of its predecessors, the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is not universally superior. Its wheelbase was reduced by 4.5 inches, while its overall length was reduced by half inch. The car ‘s width is about 3 inches, though, so the sedan’s proportions are still largely intact.
The shorter wheelbase reduces legroom a little, but the added width substantially improves hip room and shoulder. Along with the size a bit smaller overall, the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu will also reduce the size of its engine line. He will come to market with a 2.5-liter engine, four-cylinder only.
The direct injection Ecotec DOHC will generate 190 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is the box is only available in the U.S. does not change much on the side of the chassis. It has MacPherson front and a multilink setup in back, along with electric power steering and disc brakes on all four wheels.
The wheels will range in size from 17 to 19 inches. You may notice some obvious design cues from Chevrolet Malibu and this was totally intentional. “We wanted to bring the sensitivity of the sport for the family sedan segment,” said Bryan Nesbitt, executive director of design at GM.
Whether that sensitivity works for you is a personal thing, but it works well for the Malibu. Chevrolet Malibu says this is one of the most aerodynamic cars in the midsize segment, a feature that translates into some solid numbers from the EPA when it ‘re officially announced later this year.
start the actual production of the Chevrolet Malibu 2013 doesn’t the beginning of the year to the next. That should give enough time to work the creases Chevrolet before you head to the United States and abroad.
